Banana Coconut Frappe 2

Banana Coconut Frappe 1

Happy Saturday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend! We have rolled around to another delicious Recipe Redux Challenge! For those of you who aren’t familiar with Recipe Redux it is the first and only recipe challenge founded by registered dietitians. The Recipe ReDux is focused on taking delicious dishes, keeping them delicious, but making them better for you. It was founded by 3 amazing dietitians with a belief that healthier eating should always taste delicious. And let me tell you, I totally agree! The amazing bloggers who participate in this have come up with so many delicious, yet healthy recipes! If you haven’t been to the Recipe ReDux site yet, definitely pop over and check it out! Plus you can check out the other recipes from this month below!

This month our challenge was to create a beverage that was tasty AND healthy! It could be an adult beverage or that which was kid friendly! I am not a big alcohol drinker, so I made this little tropical delight customizable so that if you are in the mood for a little alcohol after a long week you could definitely add it in! 🙂

This thick, creamy frappe is packed with protein and natural sweetness from bananas and coconut! It is sure to send you straight to a tropical island….which I could use right now with all this snow we have been getting 😉 I hope you enjoy! Have a great weekend!

  • This looks SO creamy and delicious!! I don't drink alcohol, but I'm definitely someone who would enjoy any time spent on a tropical island! We went to Bali, Indonesia which wasn't very tropical-ly (apart from the weather) but we really want to go to Hawaii, Fiji and The Maldives!

  • Holy fluffiness! It looks like a marshmallow in a glass! Do you ever use Xantham gum in your smoothies to thicken them or just ice?

  • I'm not going to lie I love a good glass of red wine :) This recipe looks so good. I love how thick and delicious it looks. The flavour combo definitely reminds me of being on a tropical island sipping cocktails.
